Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Riesling are great choices for Pork Chops. Chardonnay suits simple chops or chops in a butter or cream sauce, dry riesling complements sweet additions like honey mustard or apples, and pinot noir is a safe bet for pork dishes in general. The La Crema Russian River Chardonnay with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 28 dollars per bottle.
